I just knitted a sweater jacket for a one year old. Knitted well and looks great. I think it will be great for him this fall and winter. The yarn does tend to unravel on the cut ends while you are working it.
Did not give it 5 stars as I haven't seen it washed and dried.

I liked this yarn, but I didn't love it. I used it to make my husband a scarf and hat, and it grew a bit more than I anticipated (even after washing the gauge swatch). It does, for the most part, shrink back up in the dryer but it also looks used--too much halo--and tired after soaking, drying and blocking. I'm disappointed and unlikely to use it again.

    I made a hat for a friend. It worked up quickly, and mistakes were obvious, making them easy to spot and fix. I liked the colors and that it could be machine washed. Always adore merino.I would buy this again many times over.

        I'm making the Cable Wrap shawl/shrug pattern for my sister. I'm only about halfway through the project, so I don't yet know how it will block or look when worn, but the yarn is lovely to work with and to look at. I have very high hopes for a delighted sister!

          I used this yarn to make an afghan sampler. Some blocks were lacy, some cables, various patterns. The stitch definition is Wonder! This will make a lovely wedding present.

            I used for a shawl and fingerless mittens. The shawl stretched a great deal during blocking, so I did not block the mittens.

            Incredibly soft. I did find a couple of areas that did not have the proper twist and was concerned that the garment may come apart there. Corrected after I knit; should have done before knitting...

              I am now making my third afghan with this yarn. I love the stitch definition and ease of working with it. I am used to hand dyed yarn, but this cannot be beat for evenness of color.

                  I used this washable merino for a baby blanket. It felt incredibly soft and luxurious. I loved knitting with it and didn't want to put it down because of how incredible it felt.

                    I knitted a blanket (large throw) for my niece,. She goes to Utah University so I knitted red with the white U in the middle with black edge and when I washed it the white letter turned pinkish. Very disappointed, all that work to have the colors run. Now I worry about all my other projects I've knitted and given away trusting the quality of Cascade Yarns.

                      This is a quality yarn I use it alot. I make many things hats mittens, blankets, felted purses ,toys, sweaters. I love cascade aran weight because it is thicker than worsted but thinner than bulky.Once you try it you will be hooked just like me.
